From over 180 years ago, here is an antique three-volume set of six novels of Sir Walter Scott. Published in 1840 by Baudry's European Library of Paris (the novels are in English). For books of this age they inevitably have some signs of age and wear, detailed below, but remain a scarce and unusual set.

Printed in double columns, the novels are: Waverley, Ivanhoe. The Black Dwarf, Old Mortality; The Heart of Mid-Lothian and Quentin Durward.

Inside the pages are in good condition being clean and bright, with just the occasional creased/folded corner and spot. With some pencilled notations to the top of the front paste down of volume I and pencilled titles added to the title-page of each volume (see photos). Each book has a couple of bookplates on the front paste downs. Volume II has a partially cracked hinge at the beginning.

With dark brown leather spine and corner pieces, with ornate gold decoration to the spines. With blind stamped decoration to the fronts and backs and it looks as if the colour of the boards has faded over time and there are a few light and faded marks. With a good deal of rubbing to the corner pieces and also with rubbing to the spine ends and along the joints where there are some splits and chips along the leather (see final close-up photo). Despite the rubbing to the leather the bindings are all still good and strong. An eye-catching set.

Your three volume Sir Walter Scott collection will be wrapped with care in tissue and ribbon* and sent well packaged. I am always happy to include a gift card and message if desired.

Each book H 26 cm x W 17 cm, combined weight for the set 2.2 kg. I dispatch worldwide daily from the UK. (There are just a very few countries which I am unable to ship to).

* If you would prefer for your books not to be decoratively wrapped but sent simply in the full protective packaging please add a note to the order.
